“If they don’t see me following my dreams and fighting for what I believe in — and fighting for who I am and my place in this world — they’ll never do it for themselves. And they’ll just be on Instagram thinking that’s what’s perfect. It’s not," the star, 42, told Bustle in a new interview.

While writing her 2020 memoir, Open Book, she feels like a new person who is able to process all her early trauma. When it comes to posting on social media, she has a totally different outlook.

“How do I want to raise my daughters?” The other day, she says, “I was going to post a photo because everybody’s down my neck, Jessica, you need to post, Jessica, you need to post. I’m like, OK. Then I go to post and I’m like, oh, but let’s go to the FaceApp [first]," she shared.

“I’m like, 'Oh, that makes it look a little bit better. Oh, that makes it a little bit better.' What has done that to me? What is that doing to my daughter? What we're doing on social media is creating this idea of what is beautiful and setting up our lives artificially — to look good for who?” she added.

“Oh Lord. I mean, it is not [Ozempic]," she said of the rumors. “It’s willpower. I’m like, do people want me to be drinking again? Because that’s when I was heavier. Or they want me to be having another baby? My body can’t do it.”

However, she is adamant on not letting the trolls get to her. “Am I going to let the negativity derail me? No, I’m too old for that. I am too connected to myself right now to let that derail me. It doesn't mean that it doesn’t hurt," she said. “I am fortunate to have been every size. For [my] brand, understanding the women [who buy our products], and for my psyche.”
